of pressure when it comes to this. not only from the united states, but also from its own people. now, whether these people that are detained are really involved in the attack or have links to this extremist group is something that we'll have to see and see what kind of reaction we see from the extremists too. >> do we have any idea if they're related or affirmative actionated with al qaeda? there's a lot of talk about that yesterday, the possibility that that was the organization. >> not much has been revealed by the government by this group, but what we do know, suzanne, is this is not an isolated incident. over the past few months we have seen an uptick in similar attacks targeting western interests. the u.s. consulate itself was targeted in an attack back in june when a bomb detonated outside the embassy. those attacks taken place in benghazi was targeted by a extremist group, it was called the brigades. this is a true al qaeda group. we also do know that there are groups with links direct links to al qaeda that operate in the eastern part of the country. >> what is the security situation
. to express their anger about it they attacked the red cross. the following month the united states announced that u.s. drone strike had killed a libyan who was the second ranking guy in al qaeda central. a guy who went by the moniker al libi which means the libyan. the same group in benghazi responded immediately within 24 hours. they launched another attack that they filmed al qaeda-style, and they ultimately claimed credit for it. this time their target was the u.s. consulate in benghazi, the same u.s. consulate where christopher stevens was killed two nights ago. they hit the consulate with an ied, turned the attack into an al qaeda-style video type of propaganda. the same group hit a british envoy in benghazi with a car bomb. it had the hallmarks of al qaeda inspiration or al qaeda training. they filmed the incident, dropped leaflets. they tried to take as much credit as possible. then on the morning of september 11th, this week, al qaeda central put out a video calling for attacks to avenge that same killing of al libi the group in benghazi had avenged before when it was first announced
between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the white house. thank you. mitt romney also spoke by phone today with the prime minister. the call came while romney was at the philadelphia airport after making several campaign stops in pennsylvania. that's a state most political experts don't think he'll win. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue
